Aaron Bell from the Absolute DC podcast joins Marvel today about their newfound love for Marvel Comics. After years, nay decades, both Martin and Aaron are heavily reading Marvel again and we're confused! What is Marvel doing now that's different and has us excited for the line again? Could it have something to do with an ancient Egyptian curse? Listen in and find out!
